How would you complete that sentence? Think about it.
These days, major releases are heavily scrutinized for many months, if not years before the game is actually on store shelves. We're allowed to do this because most times, the publisher and developer toss us quite a few bones; we get quotes, media, and other various pieces of information on a relatively routine basis.
One would anticipate the same for Grand Theft Auto V , easily one of the most anticipated titles of the generation. And yet, since its announcement late last year, we've really seen next to nothing, and both Rockstar and Take-Two are mostly silent on the subject. But why? How would you interpret this silence? Is this stretch of surprising quiet due to the fact that Rockstar has hit development snags? Is it because the game is further away than anyone wishes to think? …is it because they're turning GTAV into a next-gen offering?
I mean, who knows? Silence can be tough to translate. Maybe they'll make a big splash at Gamescom next month and all our questions will be answered. But if not, and we start to get towards the tail end of the summer with next to nothing on our plate, gamers everywhere are going to start to wonder… "What's going on with GTAV?" will be an awfully common question, guaranteed. Silence is just a little unnerving, especially in this information-driven industry.
